This book was interesting, but is wildly different from the fun, snark filled dialog readers expect from a Molly Harper book. If the name "Molly ..Show More »Harper" writing as ... is the lead text, it does open up certain expectations moving forward.
There are some interesting errors made with regard to Rom culture that make you go hmmmm. While this is not significant to the storyline, it is a little annoying because the cultural aspects were used in other places. I enjoyed the book but it was drastically different from what I enjoy most about Molly Harper's novels. It was at times slow and bogged down with the descriptive sex scenes, however, at other times, it glossed over aspects that might have been better served to be expanded. (i.e. just when did Alexei become so obsessed with Irina and why?) I understand many readers/listeners want those steamy scenes and that's okay too, but don't leave other bits out to make room for them. Alexei was so unlikable I felt frustrated that everyone seemed so quick to cover for him. More information about the family dynamic might have alleviated that irritation.
It is worth a listen, but I don't think I will be using future credits for this author duo.
